Ashwin's Worldly Goods



Ashwin Gopolakrishnan, aka ashwingop, who I affectionately called “Ash”, was a great man, a great rider, a friend to all, but especially a great friend to me. We met as a result of this forum and spent many hours riding together every chance we could.





As many of you know, and some of you who are new here may not, on July 23, 2009, at approximately 10:30 am EST, our good friend Ashwin Gopolakrishnan died as the result of a collision while leading a group ride at the 2009 annual YZF600R.com Gap Meet.

As a result of this, and in recognition of Ashwin's love for motorcycling and his unending willingness to offer his assistnace and knowledge to anyone in need, Ashwin's parents have graciously decided to allow his generosity to continue. Subsequently, Ashwin's motorcycle related possessions are being made available for sale to all of us here as well as the other forums which he frequented.

Unfortunately, the cost of Ashwin's death was not merely emotional, but financial as well. Many of us have already assisted Ashwin's family financially, offering whatever we could out of the kindness of our hearts, asking for nothing in return. Now you have the opportunity to assist his family further by purchasing the items that Ashwin had left behind. All of these items have been inventoried and detailed here. I, along with the help of Ashwin's family, friends, and others from both this forum and Chicagolandsportbikes.com, have collected his property and will be accepting serious offers for the purchase of these items.

You can view the list of items by downloading the attached spreadsheet. Photos of all of the items are available by clicking the links to the right of the descriptions. If an items photos have not been linked, I will be happy to send you one. Some items have not been linked due to time constraints. I will be updating the links and spreadsheet attached here regularly until all the items are complete. Until then, all of the items can be viewed here at this link.

Payment can be made with either cash, money order or via PayPal ([email protected]). If PayPal is used for payment, an additional 4% will be added to the final cost of the item(s) total to cover the transaction fees. No personal checks will be accepted. Items purchased by money order will be shipped only after the money order has cleared. 100% of the net proceeds will go directly to Ashwin's parents.

Depending on the item, it will be shipped from either TN or IL. The items will be available until sold. All sincere offers will be considered. In the case of a multiple offers for a single item, the highest offer will be considered first. Shipping cost will be the responsibility of the buyer utilizing their carrier of choice.

The following is for the sake of making certain this process is as fair, efficient and civil as possible. I am not a lawyer and I will not pretend to be
one. I post the following as a set of rules for the sales process. If you do not agree with the terms presented, do not partake. If you do partake in any
fashion, you are considered to be accepting of the rules and terms of the sale as an informed participant.

This thread is strictly to be used for display purposes only. Do not post any requests or questions here. All sales and communication will be done via email with the address of [email protected]. If you have interest in any item(s), simply refer to the item number and description in the heading of your email. I will respond to all emails in the order they are received. Sales will be completed after one week (7 days) has passed to allow another potential buyer the opportunity to outbid the previous offer. In the case of a higher offer, I will copy the original bidder(s) on the new offer(s) to allow for a counter-offer. The highest offer received for any given item(s) will be accepted at the end of the one week period and the sale will be final. All interested parties will be notified. All email addresses will be kept confidential and no personal information will be shared with any other participants. All sales are “As is” and final. No refunds will be considered or offered. Once an item has shipped, it will be the responsibility of the buyer to pursue any concerns with shipping. Tracking numbers will be made available if provided by the carrier.





Thank you for the love you have shared with Ashwin. Please continue to share his love with others.

IMPORTANT NOTICE!!!!!

An error was made on my behalf. The transaction fee of 3% was incorrect. PayPal charges a transaction fee of 4%. I have made the correction in the above rules/terms of sale. I apologize for the error. Any bids confirmed prior to this notice are exempt from the change.

Bump!

Still lots of things available! Don't forget that the value listed in the spreadsheet is not a "reserve" or a "minimum bid"!

Okay, folks. The season is upon us and the sales have all but halted. I will soon be forced to put things up for auction on Ebay. I wanted to give all of Ashwin's closest friends the first opportunity to benefit and help, and it seems, based on the slow sales, that we have met that goal.

As result, I will be putting every remaining item up for auction on Ebay, beginning the end of this month (May). You will still be able to place bids on items here, until that time.

Thanks to all of you for all you have done in support of Ashwin and his family.
